Hi All,

When I run MS Fix It I get the following messages:

1) Service registration missing or corrupt.....not fixed

2) Windows update error 0x8007005....not fixed

3) Problems installing recent updates...not fixed

I have Windows XP with the latest service pack & a 32 bit PC.

The PC came with XP installed so i cannot insert a disc and fix that way.

As far as I can see the PC is running OK.

AVG PC tune up says everything is fine.

Could it be that 'MS Fix It' is itself faulty?

Any/all ideas and suggestions welcome.

B C

Tried fxing wih both MS and Windows Fixit. Always same message.

Went to the forum site you kindly supplied and will work my way through that... thanks.

Interested to see that another individual had his problem start after an October update, same as me. Coincidence?

I can try resetting my PC to a date prior to Oct. but am concerned about losing programmes (Like Norton antivirus which have been installed after October.

Please advise if it is just MS XP and IE that will be reset to original configuration or will I lose anything installed, or correspondence received after Oct.?

I guess I should put everything onto a memory stick just in case...altough there is enough capacity on my C drive.

Appreciate the response,

Brian Charles

Yes could be an update issue.

 

With using sytem restore,you wont lose any files such as E mails or folders but you will lose programs installed after that date.

However you can always reinstall programs if it fixes the other problems.

 

System restore can always be undone if you dont like the results so,no harm in trying it.

 

I find it better to make restore points as i go along and then purge them all every now and again and start over,that way you dont have to roll the system back in time so far.

 

Also you should always back up any important data regulaly,preferably to two locations,its the only way to safeguard it,

use a usb or external drive.

 

Doesnt hurt to backup the registry before making sysem changes also using a program like erunt (easy to use) or go to file -export in regedit.

 

People that dont backup always end uplosing their data/files.

 

Let us know how it goes.

Was just looking at this issue,seems like updating is becoming an issue more and more for xp with Microsoft fixes not working.

 

If you try these solutions,back up your regiestry first.

Many  thanks W.7.

Will proceed as suggested and reply with results.

My gentle ladywife (50 good yrs together) in hospital with the big C, so many hours spent there, but will investigate over the next few days, as time permits, and apply fixes.

Ta,

Brian Charles
